The pro-seminar deals with the basics of the interaction in Virtual Reality. Selected Topics are presented in the introductory event.

Changes Due To Corona

Due to the Coronavirus, we will start with an online concept for our initally planed attendance-based introductory event on April, 7th. We will prepare a video with all required information and upload it to our youtube channel. An email with the link to this video as well as explanations for the further process will be sent around to all participants.

If attendance-based classes and events are allowed from April, 20th, on, we stick to our initial plan for the semster. Otherwise, we will use videoconferences for bilateral feedback sessions as well as the pitch meeting and the final presentation.

We will keep all participants up-to-date.


Topics for presentations will be agreed on in the course of the semester; the presentations will be given in an intensive block course format towards the end of the lecture period. Seminar participants can take part in a guided tour through the VR Lab and a demonstration of the aixCAVE.


Previous knowledge of the subject is not required.

Successful Participation

Students who wish to successfully participate in the pro-seminar must submit a written paper (a PDF file created using LaTeX), give a successful presentation of the paper (and a prior test presentation in front of their supervisor) at the block seminar, and attend the block seminar in its entirety. Please note that all deadlines must be met. The decision on who will successfully participate will be announced at the end of the block seminar.

Attention: The pro-seminar is supported by the scientific workflow guide SWOFI. Once the course starts, all further information about tasks and the required deliverables for each deadline are found under https://swofi.net:30001. It is crucial to follow the instructions listed there to successfully finish the course.

List of Available Topics
